‘He’s in some trouble’
NRL: Cory Paix could face some scrutiny from the match review committee for a dangerous tackle on James Fisher-Harris.
Both Paix and Hopoate can avoid suspension with an early plea, or face a one-match sanction if found guilty.
The Broncos are considering their position on the charges, according to their club website.
The charges put a sour note on an otherwise improved display for the battling Broncos, who managed to lose by just 25-12 to the premiership frontrunners, despite sitting in second last.
